CBI not in favour of SIT monitoring

Senior advocate K K Venugopal, appearing for the probe agency, said the CBI’s investigation has been carried out “independently and efficiently” as it had rejected even the views of Law Ministry, Corporate Affairs Ministry and Trai on different aspects.

He pointed out before a be­nch of justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly that it was a “very high profile case never seen in the history of the country”.

“A team of officials, besides a large number of experts were assisting the probe and collating the facts,” he added, obviously referring to counsel Prashant Bhushan, appearing for NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL), seeking a SIT to monitor the CBI’s “less than honest” probe into role of certain powerful people.

“I do not think any other organisation in the country could have investigated economic offence of such a high magnitude in such a speedy manner,” Venugopal said.
